18003 FITZHUGH, Lynne D. Labradorians : Voices from the Land of Cain. First Edition in dustjacket.
Breakwater Books, St. John's, NF, 1999, ISBN:1550811487 1999 1550811487 
FITZHUGH, Lynne D. The Labradorians : Voices from the Land of Cain. (St. John's, NF) : Breakwater, (1999). First Edition. Pp. (5),[vi]-xiii,(1),[15]-507,(5) + 16 pages of b&w photos. 8vo, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to spine.

"Labrador is one of North America's best kept secrets and last great uncorrupted wilderness areas, a land until recently hidden from the modern world beyond the mountains of Quebec and the ice-choked currents of the North Atlantic above Newfoundland. Oblivious to its stark beauty and ignorant of the then-abundance of fish, fur, and forest within 800 miles of coastline to his north, 16th century explorer Jacques Cartier dismissed it as 'the land God gave to Cain'. This is the story of the people who settled there, Aboriginal and European, the sons of Cain, children of Eve, or simply adventurers. It is the story of the mixed-race culture they forged by hand under some of the harshest conditions encountered by puioneers anywhere on earth.

The story-tellers are the Labradorians themselves, and they are masters of the craft. Few writers could duplicate the unerring sense of humour, pathos, and irony that emanates naturally from their artless tales. The author has woven these into profiles of Labrador's dominant mixed-race communities and their seminal component - the Innu, Inuit, and European Settlers - People whose first New World encounters took place on the shores of Labrador a millenium ago." -from the dj.

The first biography of Viardot not only recreates the drama of the prima donna's own life, but perfectly captures the scintillating brilliance of nineteenth-century artistic life: the colourful and diverse personalities of the Musset brothers, Chopin, George Sand, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, Gounod and Saint-Saens move in and out of Viardot's life. In 1843 Madame Viardot met the young Ivan Turgenev. Fromtheir first meeting until his death in 1883, he remained passionately devo ted to her, following her around Europe and spending long periods of time as a member of her household.

"Rug hooking, one of the oldest and most revered home crafts, has had an amazing revival in Canada's Atlantic provinces over the last decade. No longer needed for their practical use, hooked mats have become a versatile means of decoration as well as an outlet for creative expression, embodying the stories of the artists' personal and cultural lives. In Hook Me a Story, Deanne Fitzpatrick provides an historical background to rug hooking in the four East Coast provinces, illustrates the trends that were unique to each, and introduces the women who rekindled interest in this craft. Most importantly, she tells her own story as a third-generation 'primitive' rug hooker, as a craftsperson, and as an artist. Ever practical, she provides detailed, full-colour illustrations, and instructions on how to design and hook your own rugs." - rear cover. Foreword by Doris Eaton.

"Behind the modern railways map of Canada, with its great transcontinental routes, its network of grain lines in the Prairies, its northern extensions tapping the mineral riches of Labrador and the Northwest Territories, lie 150 years of colourful and exciting history. The first short lines, built to bypass obstacles in the waterways that formed the natural routes of settlement, were followed bydecades of speculation and competition, as growing towns and cities sought to secure their share of expanding trade, and rival companies struggled to ensure their rails would carry it. Meanwhile, confederation of the dispara te colonies in the Dominion of Canada was made possible by the Canadian Pacific, who construction was one of the epics of railway engineering, and which was to form the basis of a global transport and industrial conglomerate.With the consolidation of the early rivals into the Canadian National syst em in the years after the First World War, the country had tweo systems spanning the continent, and enterprising parivate and provincial lines provided complimentary north - south routes. Despie the vagaries of the world economy, and the growing competition from other forms of transport, Canada's railways continue to carry staggering quantities of grain, minerals and otherraw materials, while the recent formation of VIA Rail has enabled passenge r services to be maintained." -from the dj.

" The Vivid Air recreates the story of the famed Lafayette Escadrille, the American volunteer unit which fought with the French during World War I. The Lafayette Escadrille came into existence as a unique and elite squadron, destined for world renown even before it flew its first mission. The stirringinitiative of the Americans in volunteering to fight and fly for France lo ng before their own country entered the war ignited the admiration of the world. Their role as the "vanguard of American volunteers" and the remarkably high calibre of the Lafayette Escadrille pilots easily set them apart. The glamour of aviation in the Great War, a direct consequence of the grim, heroless contest on the ground, highlighted combat flying and gave pilots a special place in the public imagination.” - from the dj.

Bristol Record Society Publications, volume 61.

With several Newfoundland references contained in the index.

"The English exchequer customs accounts are the most thorough, comprehensive and long-running records of foreign trade to exist for any country in the pre-modern period. The eleven Bristol 'particular' accounts and port books reproduced in this volume were chosen to assist the re-evaluation of the economic development of southern Ireland before and during the Nine Years War (1594-1603). The Bristol accounts are without doubt the best quantitative economic record that exists for studying any aspect of Irish economic development during the sixteenth century, recording in minute detail what was the most important branch of Ireland's overseas trade. As such, these accounts can serve as the starting-point for future research into many aspects of the eceonomic and social development of southern Ireland during this period."- from the dustjacket.

Contents:
1. The 'Particular' Accounts (1-670);
2. The Port Books (671-942).

With glossaries of commodities, weights and measures; place-names; first names; and an index of people, places, and ships (1066-1081).

Illustrated. 8vo, white cloth with silver lettering to sp ine. "In the nineteenth century, the North Pole was a tantalizing mystery. Was it a continent of alien beings? Was it a portal into unknown inner worlds? Was it an open sea or a wilderness of ice? When Sir John Franklin went missing in 1845 explorers welcomed the opportunity to find out. Over the next hundred years Britain, the United States, Russia, Germany, and dozens ofother countries raced to be the first to the top of the globe. Picking up where he widely acclaimed 'Barrow's Boys' left off, Fergus Fleming's 'Ninety Degrees North' is a high-octane, swashbuckling history of the 'ice-clumped lunatics' who vied to conquer the ultimate north. Intrepid, obsessive, sometimes just plain insane, they endured scurvy, months-long ice traps, unspeakable deprivation, polar bear attacks, and sunless sub-100-degree fahrenheit winters that often led to mutiny and madness." - from the dj.

"In September 1848 seven art students, the oldest of whom was 23, resolved to challengethe ultra-conservative art establishment of England. They formed a secret organisation which they called the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. In less thantwo years the secret was out and these young artists had become notorious, controversial and more hysterically denounced than any other group of arti sts in the history of England. The dispute centred upon them involved practically every artist and art critic in the nation, and drew such prominent non-artists as Charles Dickens and the Prince Consort. Their movement was saved only by a magisterial and level-headed defence by Ruskin. In this firstfull-length study of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood Professor Fleming comb ines impressive scholarship with readability. Relying heavily upon contemporary sources, the author paints a vivid and dramatic picture of the principal figures in the movement -- John Everett Millais, Holman Hunt and, dominating the scene, one of the most fascinating personalities of the nineteenth-century -- Dante Gabriel Rossetti." - from the dustjacket.
